Body of Frenchman missing after London terror attack recovered from Thames

The death toll from Saturday's terror attack in London now stands at eight after the recovery of a body from the River Thames, British police said on Wednesday.

He is thought to be 45-year-old Xavier Thomas, who was in London for the weekend with his girlfriend.

Met Police said Marine Police Unit specialist officers recovered the body Tuesday night near Limehouse, about 2 miles away from London Bridge. Thomas' girlfriend was struck and seriously injured by the van.

Mr Thomas had been missing since he was caught up in the attack with Ms Delcros.

In the aftermath of Saturday night's attack, officials confirmed that seven people were killed and dozens of others injured.

She also was responsible for security services that failed to keep tabs on Khuram Butt, one of three men who went on a vehicle-and-knife rampage around London Bridge on Saturday.

An Italian website has claimed Moroccan and "British authorities" were tipped off about Zaghba's movements after he was charged and later cleared on worldwide terrorism charges and placed on a "persons at risk" list.

The Italian mother of Zaghba, whose father was Moroccan, said Wednesday that her son had become radicalized in Britain after falling in with the wrong group of friends.

They were Khuram Shazad Butt, Rachid Redouane, both from Barking, east London and Youssef Zaghba, 23, who is believed to be Moroccan-Italian.

Prosecutors in Italy say there was not enough evidence to arrest or charge the 22-year-old when he was intercepted at Bologna airport.

Butt had been investigated in 2015, was known by neighbors to be an extremist and was featured a year ago in a documentary on Britain's Channel 4 called "The Jihadis Next Door".

The 30-year-old was held on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorist acts during a search of a property in Ilford and taken for questioning at a south London police station, Scotland Yard said.

The three terrorists were later gunned down and killed by police.

As the row threatened to overshadow the final days of the general election, Theresa May was facing questions over the actions of the intelligence agencies and the Home Office at a time when she was home secretary.

Security sources in Ireland confirmed Redouane, 30, married a British woman in Dublin in 2012 and lived in the Rathmines area of the city. Eighteen people remain in critical condition.

Staff reported the Islamic extremist to the police when a scuffle broke out between the pair and others - only to be told Butt "was already known to intelligence".
